The Norwegian shipping company Frontline Limited announced on Tuesday (26 September) that it has agreed to sell the very large crude carrier (VLCC) Front Beijing in a USD141.5m deal.

The transaction will result in a gain of approximately USD59m, and will generate approximately USD58m in additional liquidity which will be used to fund parts of Frontline's new building programme.

"The sale of this recently delivered vessel represent no material change in the overall strategy, but should be seen as an opportunistic transaction where the effect on the overall fleet is compensated by the 11 vessel newbuilding program Frontline recently has committed to," Frontline said in a statement.

One US dollar (USD) is worth approximately 0.52 British pounds (GBP).
